Purchase Scam


We've been advertising a car on Auto Trader.

I got an e-mail from someone supposedly with a Chinese name from a Yahoo e-mail address. He offered to pay the full price for the car and would send his agent round.

I was a bit suspicious, so I asked for his address and said that the car would not be released until the cheque or banker's draft had been cleared by my bank.

I didn't hear another word!

Draw your own conclusions.
